This week and the next few are especially busy around GoodBlock. We are preparing to attend and present at both EOS World Expo in San Francisco April 13–14 and Blockchain Expo Global in London on April 25–26. These are great opportunities to talk about Telos and also about GoodBlock’s projects. We plan to show some live game play from Drakos Keep at these events. Drakos Keep is intended to be the first major new type of blockchain game. So it’s very exciting and a little daunting. So I’m going to keep the intro short here and just get back to work. 🙂
Have a great week!

Teloscope releases the Telos Killer Dapp on April 1st
We’ve all been waiting for that first killer dapp to hit blockchain and especially Telos. Well, thanks to The Teloscope, it is finally here. On April 1st, block producer, Chainspector developer, and all around great Telosians, TheTeloscope released their Telos Killer Dapp. (By no means should we read any significance into the date!). Anyone ready to feast their eyes on the future can try it out at: https://theteloscope.io/killerdapp/
Telos Core Devs Worker Proposal #1 passes
The first worker proposal submitted by the Telos Core Developer team has now passed. The 800,000 TLOS award for work already performed was shared by the ten recipients. An update on the TCD’s projects and future plans is available here: https://medium.com/goodblock-io/telos-core-devs-update-april-5th-2019-8402ff8be531
SteemChurch WP Cycle 1 passes
SteemChurch, a Telos-based user group that administers to religious and social needs in Venezuela, Nigeria, and Ghana, has passed the first cycle of its worker proposal. The WP requests 15,000 TLOS per month for six months to create free telos accounts, onboard users, and generally promote Telos throughout its communities. Voting for the proposal begins anew with each 29 day cycle and Telos users will need to renew votes in each cycle period.

ProxiBots pays out first staked token rewards
On March 30th, the Robotics control dapp, ProxiBots paid out the first of its staking rewards to those who staked the ROBO tokens it airdropped recently. ProxiBots will be sharing a portion of its earnings every week proportionate to all staked tokens. Telos account holders can stake their tokens at the ProxiBots.io site using scatter with the Telos smart contract interface at proxibotstkn::stake.
The Telos Foundation will be sponsoring EOS World Expo
The EOS World Expo will be happening in San Francisco next Saturday and Sunday. This will be a large congregation of EOSIO professionals and enthusiasts. The Telos Foundation is one of the sponsors of the event. GoodBlock is also sponsoring and hopes to be showing an early version of live gameplay from our upcoming game Drakos Keep. We should even be having some special dragon eggs to give away.

Telos IPFS system ready to begin serving dapps
Decentralized storage is an important, but missing function for decentralized apps. Telos has added a functional version called Telos IPFS or TIPFS since before launch. Now, about a dozen block producers and other node providers will be rolling out TIPFS as a service to dapps that need it. This is a first of its kind service in EOSIO. TIPFS has a long term migration plan to Filecoin via a Filecoin-Telos bridge. More details are available in this update: https://medium.com/goodblock-io/telos-ipfs-prepares-to-launch-for-dapps-fc652e58bbf8
Arbitration system update
The Telos arbitration system is making great progress. We have elected arbitrators and are even working on the second election. To fully use arbitration, however, we need to complete the smart contract-controlled arbitration portal that both arbitrators and parties will use to manage the entire arbitration process. This week, I released an update about the progress for this. The current expectation is that arbitrators will be able to start accessing the site for training next week with the portal fully opening around the third week of April.

Telos will be represented at the world’s largest blockchain expo in London on April 25th-26th
Blockchain Expo Global will occur in London on April 25–26. It is billed as the world’s largest such event with 12,000 attendees expected. The Telos Foundation has sponsored a booth and I have been invited as a speaker to discuss Telos. The attendees and speakers look to be very business focussed and representing enterprise computing companies. This is a tremendous opportunity to discuss Telos with major businesses who may build proofs of concept for their business processes. It is a major opportunity for us to grow our blockchain!
